WeMo Further Expands Internet of Things Ecosystem with New Home Sensors

WeMo announced a group of new home sensors at the 2015 International CES. Featuring a window and door sensor, personal keychain sensor, room motion sensor and alarm sensor, the WeMo sensors are designed to make the entire home smarter, more intuitive and more contextually aware. The new sensors will be on display at CES Unveiled, and during CES at the Belkin International booth, number 30551, in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. WeMo's new home sensors allow users to monitor their entire home from anywhere using a mobile device and the WeMo Link, a Wi-Fi-to-Zigbee bridge that connects the sensors to the home's wireless network. Subscription-free and a snap to install and use, the four new WeMo sensors provide peace of mind within the home and can alert users when things are amiss. Through the WeMo app, users can set schedules and receive alerts and notifications, as well as program the sensors as triggers to activate other WeMo devices. With a one-year battery life, WeMo Sensors provide long lasting home awareness.

Belkin International Announces New Keyboards for the iPad Air 2, QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard and QODE Ultimate Keyboard

Belkin International announced availability of its new keyboards for the iPad Air 2, the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard and the QODE Ultimate Keyboard. Belkin's most advanced iPad keyboards to date, both keyboards are designed specifically for the iPad Air 2 and are available exclusively at AT&T and Belkin.com. Designed for users who want both a protective case and a keyboard, but not always at the same time, the QODE Ultimate Pro features a detachable back case that makes it simple to remove from the keyboard. The case portion is compatible with the Apple Smart Cover for full dual-sided protection when the keyboard isn't in use. Thanks to its detachable case, the QODE Ultimate Pro also features both portrait or landscape modes for more viewing options than traditional clamshell keyboard cases. Belkin completely redesigned the keyboard layout of the QODE Ultimate Pro, making it the first iPad keyboard case on the market with the same number of keys as a laptop keyboard for increased functionality. Belkin also increased the width of the keycap shape and improved key pitch for a faster, more accurate and more comfortable typing experience. A first for the QODE keyboard line, the Ultimate Pro features a backlit keyboard with three brightness levels for easier typing in darkness or low light. The QODE Ultimate Pro's Bluetooth® Smart Keyboard seamlessly pairs up to two devices at once and features a smart-sensing technology that automatically turns the keyboard on when the iPad Air is docked and off when closed, even when used as a standalone keyboard. The auto on/off feature helps prevent battery drainage and contributes to the Ultimate Pro's impressive battery life of up to one year on a single charge. QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air 2 (F5L176) - MSRP - $149.99. The QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air 2 and QODE Ultimate Keyboard for iPad Air 2 are available now at ATT.com and Belkin.com, and will be available in AT&T Stores on December 6, 2014.
